Classical Tours bring you face to face with ancient Egypt's fabulous, famous antiquities. Most tours start in Cairo, with the Pyramids of Giza make a breath-taking entrance, coming into view within a skyline of high rises. Heading South, (often by Nile Cruise) your next stop explores Egypt's original city- ancient Aswan, and of course, Luxor, the Valley of the Kings and Abu Simbel. Classical tours also allow you to enjoy the ambience of the Mediterranean seaside town of Alexandria, packed with historical and modern culture - and you can even make a foray into the incredible, un-spoilt beauty of the (white) Western Desert and visit Siwa, a date palm oasis.
When taking the classical route it's still possible to sneak a cheeky add-on to your tour and pop over to the Red Sea - after those dusty historical treasures you can enjoy a refreshing splash-down and even a dive.
